There are so many people who present to my office with extremely complicated health problems, and often times they are looking for a very complicated solution.Dr. Tyler Schwanz
- When it comes to our health, we often complicate the uncomplicated as an excuse not to make the simple choices required for change.
- We tend to underestimate the power of boring everyday decisions performed with extreme consistency.
- When we habitually delay physical activity for tomorrow, we reduce the number of tomorrows we have left.
- Any amount of physical activity is better than no amount of physical activity.
- If prolonged sitting is detrimental to our health, then regular walks are the cure.
- A daily walking regimen leads to benefits in neuromuscular health, cardiovascular health, and mental health.
- Even if our genetic makeup or external environment place us at risk for poor health outcomes, we have the power to make choices that reduce those risks.
- Physical activity also improves our creative expression, memory capacity, and emotional regulation.
- Take a walk outside every day for the next month, even when you don’t feel like it.
- Identify a minimum acceptable amount of daily physical activity, and commit to making it a priority.
- Pause at intervals throughout your day to take your emotional temperature.
